Meandering through the Delta yet again


Since we are in the dead of winter, we can see some details of this abandoned farmhouse. This side, to the south, is hanging in there well. The north side of the house is progressing well to the final lost battle with gravity. It’s not good. It’s not bad. It is the result of prevailing economics that were not in its favor.

Most folks who want to observe nature, take drives in the country, or just meander around, take a vacation from those activities in winter months. They are missing one act of the play. While greenery is beautiful in its verdant presentation, it serves to block out some nice natural details available only in its absence. Today we are looking at those details. Speaking of which, be sure and see the other pictures we took on this trip on the Photo of the Week page at Corndancer dot-com


It’s like a giant, lacy dry flower arrangement, but with the benefit of reflections. Prevailing earthy winter colors are accented with the details and specks of sky that Mother Nature presents here. Not available in about four three months or so.


Take and up close and personal look at some naked cypress trees in the watery environment they love. You can see the waterline from our last local deluge. Get a good look now because this view is not available during the “green” months.


Here’s another look at the cypress in this little bayou. Since there is no greenery, the reflections are dramatic.


Down here in LA, boys will be boys. Since this sign faces the long part of a “T,” the temptation is simply too great. Oh, and by the way, to the last shooter, probably two clicks down and two left clicks  should do the trick.

Thanks for looking and do yourself a favor, bundle up, get out and see the stuff that ain’t gon’ be there in a cuppla months.
